Julia | Exchange to Università Ca' Foscari, Italy

Julia spent six months on an international student exchange at Università Ca' Foscari in Venice, Italy.

Julia undertook exchange to Università Ca' Foscari in Italy. She writes:

I decided to do an exchange as I had never left Australia, I really wanted to see the difference in cultures in Europe, and the sub-cultures.

I decided to do an exchange as I had never left Australia, I really wanted to see the difference in cultures in Europe, and the sub-cultures.

Some of the challenges have been the language barrier, it has been very intersting learning sign language – trying to express yourself talking like a four-year-old!

Sometimes interesting food options come up if you pronounce your words incorrectly, and navigating different public transport systems is very very interesting.

On exchange you learn so much about yourself, as well as the people around you. You make new friends, you discover new hobbies, you eat new food, it's really an incredible way to see more in-depth of a culture, rather than just being another tourist in a big city.
